Fans of the Bel-Air saga have something to celebrate. The dramatic reimagining of the classic 90’s sitcom has been renewed for a third season at Peacock only four episodes into Season 2.
Having smashed records as the streamer’s highest-ever viewed original premiere when it debuted in 2022, Bel-Air has only increased its viewership heading into its sophomore season, once again emerging as Peacock’s most-watched original show in its second year.
Based on the highly viral short film of the same name crafted by show creator and executive producer Morgan Cooper, the hour-long drama examines the life of Will, uprooted from his familiar Philadelphia surroundings after a violent incident threatened his life and future, now at a crossroads coming of age as a fish out of water in his wealthy extended family’s home.
In the show’s second season, Will is finding more of his footing at Bel-Air academy, and working to rebuild trust in his family and refocus his energy toward excelling at basketball. But a new figure in his life threatens to undermine the lessons he’s learned in Bel-Air and throw a wrench into the new life he’s building with his Aunt, Uncle, and cousins.
